Currently, the 677 submarines have no competitors in terms of combat effectiveness and other tactical and technical characteristics. Their main purpose is the destruction of submarines, surface ships and ships, as well as enemy coastal facilities, the installation of minefields, the landing and reception of sabotage and reconnaissance groups.
